THE SECRETS OF GASLIGHT LANE M. R. C. KASASIN

London, 1883:
All is quiet at 125 Gower Street. Sidney Grice is swotting up on the anatomical structure of human hair whilst his ward, March Middleton, sneaks upstairs for her eighth secret cigarette of the day. The household is, perhaps, too quiet.    
So, when a beautiful young woman turns up at the door, imploring London’s foremost personal detective to solve the mystery of her father’s murder, Grice can barely disguise his glee.
Mr Nathan Garstang was found slaughtered in his bed, but there is no trace of a weapon or intruder.      A classic locked-room case. But what piques Grice’s interest is the crime’s link to one of London’s most notorious unsolved murders. Ten years ago, Nathan’s uncle aunt and servants were murdered in their sleep in the very same house.
Now, it seems, the Garstang murder is back.
MY REVIEW
I have never read one of The Gower St Detective books. I found this novel amazing, it is so well written. I found hard to put it down. I would really like to start reading more of M. R. C. Kasasian’s books. The Gower St Detective Book 4. In Camden, London,the Garstang household are all murderd. Holford  Garstang, his wife Augusta and three of the residential servants were discovered with their throats cut. Their godson, Lionel Engra, was strangled. The only survivor was Angelina Innocenti, the lady’s maid. This book would certainly make a lovely gift for someone.
